He was a honky tonk hero
She was the west Texas rose
He had his hands clenched in hatred
And she made the sweet flowers grow

They met on a Saturday evenin'
At a place called the Last Chance Saloon
Her hand in his stopped his tremblin'
When he laughed as they danced 'cross the room

The jukebox was playing a beautiful song
A tune called the West Texas Waltz
And it seemed like the whole world was dancin' along
With the music controlling it all

Away, come away from that window
Come lay down beside me a while
You know I stepped out of the shadows
To walk in the warmth of your smile

Nobody knows me like you do
You changed me and made me your man
I gave up the life of an outlaw
The day that you gave me your hand

The jukebox was playing a beautiful song
A tune called the West Texas Waltz
And it seemed like the whole world was dancin' along
With the music controlling it all

He was a honky tonk hero
And she was the west Texas rose
They met on a Saturday evenin'
And she made the sweet flowers grow
